Just brewed my 3rd extract kit, The Surley furious. While cooling with wort chiller and stirring occasionally poured into my primary went temp was at 80 without letting it settle and piched my yeast. Primary has about 1’ of solids on the bottom before fermentation has begun. Any problems with this.

Would be better to chill to the low- to mid-60s before pitching yeast, then keep it at <68F (beer temp) for at least the first couple of days. 80F encourages the yeast to grow and consume quickly and they make unwanted byproducts like fusel alcohols under these conditions.

Thanks for the reply, will bring it down a little more next brew. Temp was in the mid 70s after topping off the primary when I pictched my yeast.
